In this biogas plant at Biofors, pig manure in combinations with co-materials is digested. This produces an electrical output of 18,000 MWh per year.

Energy-rich, dry products are used as an input material. All the digestate is then dried in a drying system. To produce enough heat for the drying,  one of the CHPs is replenished with natural gas.

The dried digestate can then be sold abroad.
